Motorola’s New Android Powered Ming A1680

August 11, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

Here is a neat new phone from Motorola that looks similar to the Verizon Krave phone that is already out. This phone belongs to Motorola’s Ming series of devices in China. Now that Motorola has made the switch to Android across its full lineup of phones, it only makes sense to move the Ming series from Linux to Android. The new A1680 has been talked about since April of this year, but now thanks to Motorola’s MOTODEV site for developers, we now know all of the specs! The phone will come with 624MHz PXA935 core which is nothing to brag about but you can increase the standard memory of 512 MB up to 32 GB via an SD card. The A1680 will have a 3.1″ AMOLED touchscreen with 800 X 480 resolution  and will come with a stylus. You will also have Bluetooth 2.1 and a 5 megapixel camera with auto focus. The screen can recognize handwriting as well. Android 1.6 will be the OS shipped with the device. There is no word on price or release date yet. It should be out in the neat future!
